Founded by a gregarious coach named Mike Winburn, Win Kids Sports and Learning Center has grown from a tiny operation with a handful of play mats and a lone guitar to a 27,000-square-foot facility that plays host to a huge variety of kids' classes and camps. Monitored by a talented staff that includes former competitive swimmers and black belts in judo, taekwondo, and jiu-jitsu, children aged 6 months to 15 years old build stronger bodies and self-confidence in sessions ranging from gymnastics and martial arts to dance and cheer. A certified lifeguard watches over paddlers during lessons and birthday parties held around the 90-degree swimming pool. Staffers also teach private music lessons, where youths can learn songs to coax out reclusive invisible friends, and a new QUICKSTART and Jr. Tennis Program rounds out services at the facility.

Cerebral toys teach little tykes the basics of numbers and colors, and wooden train sets review the basic origins of interstate commerce. Around the facility, mechanical elephants and zebras trot through a safe indoor jungle beneath giggling children, and a kid-size, primary-colored train chugs to life around a palm-flanked track. On an obstacle-flecked mini-golf course, prehistoric creatures guard the borders of each pin and avoid the ball pits that colorfully resemble the meteorites of their ancestors' demise. Age limits become obsolete with a specific play area for toddlers.
